What a difference a week makes. Last weekend it snowed, but this weekend is turning out to be absolutely gorgeous. The sky is blue, the sun is shining, and the temperature is hovering close to 70 degrees.
I decided to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather yesterday, by heading to downtown Anchorage and taking a walk along the coastal trail and through the weekend market. With camera in hand, I decided I would play tourist and take a bunch of photos to share with you. (Note: you can click on any picture to view a larger version)
We begin our walking tour at Westchester Lagoon, which is a popular bird watching spot located on the Tony Knowles Coastal trail.
We leave Westchester Lagoon and head north on the coastal trail, heading to downtown Anchorage.
As we approach Knik Arm, we are treated to a spectacular view of Mount Susitna.
I hope you’ll join me tomorrow for Playing Tourist – Part 2, where we’ll take a trip through the market, and explore a few of the sights of downtown Anchorage.
Have a wonderful day!
